Asylum Visa Attorneys in Charlotte

Comprehensive Legal Representation

If you fear for your safety by returning to your home country, you may be granted legal protections within the United States. An asylum visa allows an individual to reside in the U.S. when there is definitive proof that they are being persecuted. This is different from refugee status, which would require the persecuted individual to currently reside in their home country when applying. When applying for an asylum visa in Charlotte, it is recommended that you seek professional legal counsel. Our immigration attorneys at Vásquez Law Firm, PLLC, have years of experience in helping individuals get the protection they need.

Contact us today at (704) 271-5597 to learn how we can help you. Our Charlotte immigration attorneys also assist clients in Raleigh and Smithfield.

How Do I Qualify for Asylum?

In order to qualify for an asylum visa, you must demonstrate that you have been persecuted in your home country or will be if you were to go back. The reason for the persecution must also be related to either your race, nationality, political opinion, religion, or membership in a social group. It should be noted, however, that if it is only unsafe for the individual to return to a specific region of their home country, then their application may be denied.

Forms of persecution can include:

  • Imprisonment
  • Violence toward protestors
  • Genocide against a particular race
  • Exclusion of religious members in politics

    Individuals Barred from Receiving Asylum Visas

    While there are conditions that must be met to qualify for asylum status, you can also be barred from obtaining a visa. For example, if you have engaged in the persecution of others, you will not be allowed to apply for asylum. Individuals who are considered threats to U.S. security will also be barred from applying for a visa.

    If you fear persecution in your home country, call our Charlotte asylum visa attorneys at (704) 271-5597 to learn what your options are.
